A degree from Karolinska Institutet is a step toward a successful career, either as a researcher or within the public and private sectors.
If you are an international student and want to work in Sweden after your studies are finished you need to contact the Swedish Migration Board. On Sweden.se you will find more useful information on working and settling in Sweden.
There are a number of things you can do to maximise your career prospects during and after your studies. Like for instance getting involved in extracurricular activities during your studies to give yourself a competitive edge. It could be joining a non-profit organisation, being chair in a committee or an actual job. Building your brand in social media could also give you a head start as well as attending events arranged by Career Service. Attending career events will prepare you for the competition on the job market and you will receive information of the career opportunities that lay ahead.
